Hi there, Martijn is de naam.
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.”
Nelson Mandela
By profession actor/theatremaker/writer I have always been fascinated by language and how it manifests itself in our everyday life. Sometimes beautiful, but let’s admit, it can be awful when you don’t have or find the words. I can offer you my love for theatre, literature, art and life to make you feel, hear and use the power of language, in this case Dutch. I have been a language-tutor for refugees since two years and therefor I have experienced the difficulties but also the happiness of being in a new culture. It’s not easy learning a new language. It sometimes takes blood, sweat and tears, to use an Amsterdam-expression, but I can assure you it will pay off. Especially with the Flowently-method.

    So far I have had 6 lessons with Martijn. My weakness is afraid to speak in Dutch. However, with Martijn, I felt comfortable and safe to express myself in Dutch. I really feel significant improvement each week. He is very patient and helpful. We always find different study materials and he genuinely finds things that fit my interest. I felt encouraged. He is very generous in giving compliments and encouragement as well as when needed, he always tries to improve my pronunciation and grammar. He is also able to give me an intensive lesson in the daytime. Regardless which day and location.
    Besides his role as a Dutch teacher, he also tries to introduce me to some exclusive Dutch experiences such as volunteering work etc. I definitely recommend him for any new flowently students.
